The Oregon Symphony and conductor Carlos Kalmar continue their acclaimed Aspects of America series with this second installment in DSD Stereo and DSD Multichannel sound. This album features three symphonic works that were all awarded a Pulitzer Prize.
Walter Piston’s Symphony No. 7 (Pulitzer Prize 1961) is a pastoral and jubilant glorification of nature, while Morton Gould’s Stringmusic (Pulitzer Prize 1995) was composed for star cellist Rostropovich, and showcases all possible sounds and colors of the string orchestra. In his Symphony No. 4 “Requiem” (Pulitzer Prize 1944), Howard Hanson explores the mysteries of life and death in an American musical idiom that simultaneously reveals the composer’s Nordic roots.
This is the 6th DSD Stereo and DSD Multichannel release from the Oregon Symphony and its conductor and music director Carlos Kalmar available at the NativeDSD Music Store. We invite our listeners to also consider their earlier DSD recordings - Music for a Time of War (2011), This England (2012), Spirit of the American Range (2015), Haydn Symphonies 53, 64 & 96 (2017), and Aspects of America (2018).
